  • Wednesday, January 9, 15:33

 

Tbilisi.  Chairman of the Dutch Parliament's Defence Committee Ten Brook estimated positively current reforms in Georgia he sphere of defence. He stated about after a meeting with Defence Minister of Georgia Irakli Alasania on Tuesday, January 8, the press-0service of the Georgian Defence Ministry reports.

Ten Brook's visit to Georgia began on January 8. In the framework of the visit he will hold meetings with representatives of executive and legislative power of the country and will leave Georgia on January 10. At the meeting with Alasania, the sides considered issues of Georgia's integration into Euro-Atlantic structures, reforms, planned  in the defence sphere  and  issues of assistance to the Afghan National Security Force in post-ISAF period after 2014.

"The current reforms in the defence department impressed me greatly. It is important for the international community to be aware what reforms the Georgian Defence Ministry carries out. An independent, apolitical   serviceman will promote growth of the confidence in the society", Ten Brook noted.

               In turn, Irakli Alasania stated that Georgia "has already been involved in the planning process of the future of the ISAF mission along with NATO - how separate countries USA, Great Britain and others will continue cooperation with Afghan Government. Our strategy will be based on above mentioned process how Georgia will assist to Afghan National Security Forces with training. I'd like to underline that our mission won't be military and combat. Our task will be to share experience to the ANSF. We also offer the Afghan side to educate their soldiers at National Defence Academy of Georgia".
